Default Well, this is it

Three days at the biggest knife show in the world - Blade show Atlanta.

I get to find out if I have what it takes to run with the big dogs

Greatful for the opportunity. Very excited to get my knives in the hands of enthusiasts and collectors.

It has been a long couple of weeks. These are the seven that made the cut

If you are in town and happen to be at the show, please stop by and say hello. The wife will be there with me some of the time!

I've been seeing those ads and wondering about you. Good luck at the show, are you going to do woodworking on the ground with the kids like in the ad?

Do you do swords? I'd love to see you on the TV show Forged in Fire. Although its less about quality than slamming out the best thing you can in a few hours.

Did you ever see the biker build offs? I was thinking that a sword competition where the guys have a week or more at their own shop would be better. Maybe there isn't enough drama in it, though.

Looks like beautiful workmanship. I really like the one in the lower right, looks like it would be very comfortable to hold.
